Colorado Cutthroat – GMP (Girl Matching Player)

Girls Cutthroat w/ Alpenglow 2023

Who: All GMPs will be welcome at YCC practices throughout the summer.

Numbers and Tryouts: If we don’t have enough players across both ages registered, we will likely only have one competitive team that competes. Will will  allow any interested player to tryout for this competitive team, regardless of age. We believe strongly in growth and development, and welcome players who do not make the competitive team to continue to practice with us and grow throughout the season, and will have the option to stay in the team hotel if they wish to support the team at YCC! If there is only one competitive team, girls who do not have the opportunity to play in tournaments will pay a lowered price. 

Practices: Our practices will be open to all GMPs who register, regardless of if they make the competitive team or not. Practices will be 5:30-8:30pm on Thursdays and Sundays. We are still waiting on confirmation, but expect one practice to be at Monarch HS and one practice to be in Lakewood. 

Note: If practices have fewer than 10 girls, after 2 low attended practices we will cancel the following. Low practice attendance impacts the quality and benefit of what players will get out of practices. If this is an ongoing issue, we will discuss having fewer practices over the summer.

Playing Opportunities: Our competitive team will have the opportunity to participate in:

  • at least one adult mid-season tournament, 
  • Youth Club Championships (YCC)- August 2-5 (Friday-Monday) at Aurora Sports Park
  • Club Sectionals- September 7-8 at Long Lake Regional Park

Please note that the ability to compete in tournaments relies on having at least 15 players for midseason tournaments and club sectionals, and at least 18 for YCC.

Cost: Cost is $100 less for Girl matching players. The cost will be $550- which covers practice fields, coaches, tournaments, tournament food, hotels and accommodations and meals the weekend of YCC. **Note: Players are not required to purchase new jerseys each season. For those who new or needing/wanting to purchase jerseys this season, please plan on an additional cost (last year a full kit was $105)

Fun Fact: I still have two baby teeth!

Coach Willy (she/her/hers)
I grew up playing high school frisbee in North Carolina and got introduced to coaching with middle schoolers there. I came to Colorado for CU (sko buffs!) and currently play for Quandary and Molly Brown. I’ve coached Fairview High School for a few years now and am so excited to work with Cutthroat and more of the Colorado community!
 
Fun fact – Can always be found spreading dandelion seeds at the fields
 
Coach Brix (she/her/hers)
Brix has played and captained various mixed teams including Flight Club and Vendetta. She recently competed in the US Masters National Championships where she was awarded the 2023 Masters Mixed Division Spirit and Equity Award. She also coaches ultimate at East High School.
 
What job would you be terrible at and why? – I’d never make it as a professional wrestler due to my small size and aversion to combat.
 
Coach Jana (she/her/hers)

Jana started playing ultimate in college, and over the past 30 years has played College, Club, Masters, Grand Masters and Beach. She coached the CU Women’s team for 5 years in the early 2000s and after a break from coaching has gotten back into into it as a high school and YCC coach.

What imaginary/fictional world would you live in? – Island of Berk, from How to Train your Dragon.

Coach Maggie (she/her/hers)

Maggie began playing in high school after she was somewhat peer pressured into it. Turns out, she loved it! She’s been playing since (with a brief hiatus during the pandemic). Maggie’s coaching career began when she joined the team of Slapdash Ultimate, a league for adults who want to play spirited ultimate, which largely teaches new adults how to play. Her and the other partners of Slapdash were recruited to coach GALS Middle School last fall! This spring, Maggie is coaching Colorado Academy’s Middle School Mixed and High School Girls Teams.

What job would you be terrible at and why? – I’d probably be bad at anything where I have to sit at a desk all day. I like to be out and about and working with other people! Not to mention, my back would hurt.

Coach Filley (she/her/hers)
Filley started playing Ultimate at Boulder High in 2013 and hasn’t stopped since! After playing D1 college ultimate at Whitman, she lived in Seattle where she played for three different club teams. In 2022, Filley returned to Colorado where you can find her playing for the Colorado Alpenglow in the spring and Flight Club in the summers.
 
What job would you be terrible at and why? – I would be the *worst* professional poker player. I would just giggle and give all my secrets away.
